Ralph was born in Poznan, Poland. At age of 10 he immigrated to Italy and then moved to Unites States two years later.
Ralph's entrance into filmmaking was rather unorthodox. About around 2010, as a musician, he was in need of a musical video. Although several people with a film background helped him get the project started, much of the work fell upon his shoulders. In order to complete the project, Ralph was forced to learn and perform many of the filmmaking tasks. Since that initial project, he has fallen in love with the entire process of filmmaking. He has now produced a number of music videos along with 3 short films up to date. In addition, he started his own film/
video production company and produces commercial work. Ralph is a self-taught filmmaker, and such background gives him a perspective and creative approach free of traditional filmmaking paradigms.
Ralph Klisiewicz is inspired by directors like David Fincher, Danny Boyle, and Denis Villeneuve. As mentioned, Ralph did not study film at a traditional film school. Instead, he has a degree in psychology. Being a student of psychology Ralph is interested in exploring deeper, and potentially darker, layers of his characters. He is always seeking a thorough understanding of what motivates and moves his character to behave.
In addition to directing his own films, Ralph has worked as a DOP and an editor for other filmmakers. He strongly believes in building a community of filmmakers and related artists. He looks forward to projects that challenge him and push him to grow
as a filmmaker.
